Behind the Curtain
Since I don’t know how to write,
I prefer to make a drawing
With his good share of sweet dark sense of humor, Dran sets his eye on the contemporary society, by taking the curtain up and revealing its mechanisms. These recurring themes are often depicted through children equipped with crayons who also question the suppression and imprisonment of such creativity, with their imaginative mind. Dran also criticizes social issues including the modern era’s rise in failed marriages, the inability of couples to connect to one another despite sharing an intimate bed, environmental destruction paving the way for more condos, overconsumption and waste.
Known as “the French Banksy”, and a member of Da Mental Vaporz group, Dran’s approach to street art is similar to the English graffiti artist in tone and message, while we can admire a really impressive work from the illustrative point of view.
